Next week we will have the discharge pots going in the patio, but we will add a few things to the process of taking color out of the fabric.
to cut the foam.
Bring your fabric from this week to add to or for other considerations.

I am back and ready to begin class again. I was with my sister in North Carolina. Her husband died and I left suddenly to be there with her. Sorry I didn't get to the FIDM Field trip. I was on a p;ane at 6:30 am headed East.
Week 1 March 12 Discharge pots. Bring your dark fabric wrapped or tied in bundles or on poles, ropes etc. and plunge it into a discharge pot. it will take color out. You can also use the parfait dyeing technique and put in diluted bleach solution if you use cotton or rayon. Lots of possibilities.
Week 3 March 26 I will bring dye for both cotton and silk and you can replace color with new colors.
or you can do some of the other dye techniques we have used in other classes.
Week 4 April 2 More dye.
This is another example of using bleach solution on cotton.
Cotton, rayon or silk in dark colors to remove.
Let's have some fun!
